ILFC has received its 400th 737, an -800, from Boeing, which has been leased to Travel Service of the Czech Republic.

Interesting point in the press release: Boeing says "over 4,720" NG 737s sold; add that to the 3,132 737 Classics (-100 through -500) and they're within whispering distance of the 8,000 mark.

Well done. The line should break 10,000!  wideeyed  That is unless a new aircraft comes out to compete.  scratchchin 

To think, ILFC will make more profit off these planes than Boeing!  spin

And GECAS isn't far behind, getting its 300th 737 ... a -900ER for Excel:

(Like the way the press release was copied verbatim, including "photo attached" ... but no photo!)

Well we just suprassed 7000 last summer, so at the current sales rate, it won't be long. Over 900 737s were sold, yet only about 350 were built. That's impressive for a plane that's been around for a decade to have its best sales year ever.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
